Giving some serious thought to making changes in your yard?

Many are just because they said they can't stand how it is going to look later this season.

Forecasters are predicting another summer where more than half of the country will be dried up and Oklahoma is right in the middle of that expected drought.

That is one reason many homeowners are giving up on grass.

Many said they are frustrated there is nothing they can do about brown grass so they are digging it up and replacing it.

Architects call it "zeroscaping," or conforming your landscape not to require much water.

Plenty of alternatives are available like drought-resistant plants or even a man-made option, synthetic grass, like that from a company based right here in Oklahoma, Always Greener.
